this garage was recommended to me by a friend, i've used them twice, am very happy with the work (quality, price, turnaround time) and just want others to know they're out there. they also have an additional location across town in cambridge on richdale ave. near porter square; i have received the same quality of service at both locations and highly recommend either.

Harry is a very friendly guy who fixes my leaking exhausted pipe at no times at all! I just passed by his store, explained my problem to him, and he immediately grabbed the tools to fix it for me. And best of all, I only have to pay half of the price that other mechanics offered me, and still fixed my problems! And now, my 92 Subaru Legacy is running smoothly and quietly once again all because of Harry's wonderful work! Go Harry!

My boyfriend and I were setting out on a roadtrip to NJ when the infamous "check engine" light came on. I stopped by, thinking it would probably delay our trip by at least a few hours. When we explained the situation, they took it in and performed a few tests and explained I needed a new O2 sensor, but that it was still safe to drive. All of this while we ate breakfast across the street. The best part? NO CHARGE! They definitely won a repeat customer.

I've only been to these guys once, based on a combo of this guide's review, the AAA listing, proximity to public transportation and the fact that when I called 15 places at 7:00am trying to figure out who could take my clutch to that day for quick turnaround... they actually answered the phone. I don't know who the mechanic was who worked on my job specifically, but they appear to have done great work (the clutch feels quite different, but that might be expected - I didn't ask for any adjustment after the fact). Not only did they get the job done quickly (a full clutch replacement, including road test and check, with geunine Subaru parts in a little over 24 hours), but the price was reasonable (I got independent verification from a buddy who knows a lot about such things) and exactly what they estimated to me. In fact, it was about $50 less because of the AAA discount THEY they told ME about. If that wasn't enough, they went the serious extra mile, throwing in a requested oil change for free, and a completely unexpected exterior and interior cleaning, also gratis! They made some recommendations for things they noticed during their checks and road test, gave me an itemized list and an estimate for the job, but told me there was no real hurry to get the work done, just at some point it woiuld become a good idea. No pressure, just info. They even made sure there was someone there 2 hours after the shop closed to let me pick my car up. My current plan is to pretty much go to Sparky and crew for every repair and regular maintenance, and hope not too many people read this review and start fighting me for their time.

Sparky is straight up honest with you right from the start. No sugarcoating, just the truth about the vehicle and necessary work. The work was timely, applicably priced, and guaranteed. I had a great experience and would recommend A-Z to anyone looking for trustworthy mechanics.

I found out about these guys through the cartalk website - and all of the reviews were pretty accurate. They took my car in right away, were honest (and accurate) about when they'd be able to get to the repairs), and they called prior to starting any of the work and walked me through the repairs that my car needed. I didn't go for all of the repairs at once, and they supplied me with a detailed estimate to hold on to for when I wanted to complete the repairs. But the best thing was that I called around to some other garages and was able to confirm that their quoted price was not only fair, but unmatched. I would definitely recommend Sparky and his garage to anyone in the area.

These guys were my savior when I knew no other honest mechanic. They have always been very accommodating and honest. The hours are great, you can drop your car off at two ( the gas is open 24 hours ) and they'll call you in the morning. The pricing hs always been reasonable, and they're just plain nice, to men and women alike.
